The UbuCon Europe in Germany and France have been a great success for the European Ubuntu community the last two years.
We would like to organize the next UbuCon Europe in Spain, with the work of users who can personally commit it by themselves.
The proposed dates would be 27th, 28th and 29th of April 2018, because it is a good time of the year for teachers & students and it would coincide with the expected release of Ubuntu 18.04.
The chosen city would be Xixón  a city in the Principality of Asturies  in the north of Spain.
More precisely, the place selected for the event would be Antiguo Instituto , built in 1797 as a centre for scientific and technical education. Currently it is a public place, maintained and managed by the City Council, and it is a reference place for cultural diffusion.
The list of available places would be:
- Assembly Hall for conferences .
- Conference Hall .
- Workshops room .
- Central area for stands .
Xixón has excellent connections from many different cities in Spain and Europe, and the costs for potential participants and visitors would be quite affordable:
- Airport : Direct flights from several Spanish and European cities: Madrid, Barcelona, Munich, Paris, Venice, Lisbon, London and Geneva.
- Train: From Madrid.
- Bus: From Madrid.
In summary, we have the date, the place and a team of enthusiastic people, so we want to propose to organize the next (3rd) Ubucon Europe.
We are looking forward to receiving news from you soon.
Best regards and thank you in advance. On behalf of:
